Rapper and VMA Best New Artist nominee Kreayshawn‘s twitter was hacked the other day by a group going by the name Hollywood Leaks who used her account to tweet anti-Semitic statements and release nude photos. Now Kreayshawn’s saying that the photos were taken when she was underage, which adds adds the offense of spreading child pornography the the crimes of the hackers. From Kreayshawn’s tumblr:
“My twitter got hacked today by some anti-hollywood extremists. They sent out wack ass tweets and promoted their odd message of anti-jew stuff and deleted my twitter.. Oh and they leaked out private photos of me while I was underage. Real nice guys! Spreading child-prono thats cute. VMA’s was insane on top of that. Can I shit man?”
The hackers claim to be an offshoot faction of the notorious 4chan group Anonymous. Last week, the group hacked Julianne Hough’s cell phone and released photos and contact info. In a video manifesto, they declared an anti-Hollywood mission statement: “Attention Hollywood we are Anonymous. We have been watching you. We have been listening to you. You have been allowed to run free too long.”
However, it also appears the hackers were motivated by “LULZ”:
Kreayshawn’s not taking the attack lightly. In a follow-up Tumblr post, she complained:
“All I wanted to do is create and have a good time. But, this is quickly forming into something I never would have signed up for from being accused of being racist to getting my pre-teen nudes leaked everywhere. I feel like this shit ain’t my cup of tea. Someone else want my job right about now? Im just gotta sip lean and disappear. THIS GAME IS FAKE AS ALL HELL!”
The authorities are apparently on the case — so hopefully they’re catch the hackers before any more of Hollywood leaks out.
